International Business Education at Best B-Schools
Eisner, Susan; Harvey, Mary Ellen O'Grady
Journal of College Teaching & Learning, v5 n1 p31-46 Jan 2008
This paper investigates the preparation undergraduate students readying for participation in the global economy and interested in international business careers can receive at U.S. business schools. Existing literature point to the importance of internationalizing business education, but have been relatively silent in recent years regarding its status. Accordingly, this study seeks to contribute to business education and management practice by examining the attributes of international business programs currently offered by "best" business schools. Gap analysis and benchmarking tools are identified and summarized within the context of existing literature. Analysis and recommendation are provided to assist educators developing programs that successfully train graduates for the challenges and opportunities of today's international workplace. (Contains 7 tables and 20 endnotes.)
